Attention Long-Distance Grandmoms: Gramma In A Box Is For Us!

Attention Long-Distance Grandmoms: Gramma In A Box Is For Us!

My two youngest granddaughters, age three and five, live nearly 3,000 miles away and we were desperate to find ways to not just keep in touch, but to surprise and delight them as well.

The answer came my way, when I discovered, Gramma in a Box.

Terry Chamberlain

According to Terry Chamberlin, the originator of Gramma in a Box, ” I developed this idea when three of my grandchildren moved to Seattle. I was always boxing up cookies and treats that we could make together when we Skyped. Once I shared this idea with other friends and family, the concept for Gramma in a Box was born!

If you are lucky enough to live near your grandchildren, or as a parent you want to have a fun, creative project without all the work, then Gramma in a Box may be right for you.  Or, if you are like me, and your grandchildren do not live nearby, then shipping Gramma in a Box may just be the fun, monthly activity for you to send.

Your monthly Gramma in a Box includes baked cookies with frosting and sprinkles as well two easy candy crafts to make – enough to make at least 20 finished products in each box.  Step-by-step instructions with illustrations are included.  Fun for everyone in the family. Check out  “How it Works” for more information.

How it Works

Each month you will receive a fun filled box of treats to make. Your box includes almost everything you need to make and decorate up to 20 cookie and candy treats, including fresh homemade cookies, a variety of sprinkles and colored frosting, two easy candy crafts, detailed instruction sheet with photos, as well as decorating ideas. Some months will also include holiday theme candy and cookies, such as the Valentine’s and St. Patrick’s Day photos below. This will be a fun memory maker for children who do not live near their Gramma, or as a great activity for when Gramma visits! So fun and easy that even Grandpa will enjoy helping out!
